Remember back in 2004 when Britney Spears had a quickie Vegas wedding with some rando named Jason Alexander? (Not the Seinfeld Jason Alexander.) Well, Lance Bass sure does remember--because that was also the night he came out to the pop superstar. "It was the night that she got married the first time in Vegas to Jason...She was a little upset once she realized what she had done because, you know, it was a funny thing," Bass recalled on Monday's Watch What Happens Live. "And then she started, like, really crying and, like, she was so upset. So I took her to her room and we were sitting on her bed and she wouldn't stop crying, so I was like, 'I'm gay.' And it made her stop crying...She chuckled." ET notes that Bass' private confession to Spears took place about two years before he came out publicly. The 40-year-old Bass also revealed on WWHL that he became a "member of the mile high club" by having sex on a plane with a woman back when he was with *NSYNC. "I was doing it and doing it and doing it well," Bass quipped. "Doing what we had to do to survive."
